Cats Are Saved at Tree House, Wendi Taylor Nations on the Black Cat Ball


Save homeless cats! You can help all cats, including those not owned (referred to as feral cats or community) by helping Tree House Humane Society, Chicago’s oldest no kill all cat shelter, and attend the big Black Cat Ball, October 17, 6:30 p.m. under the stars at the Adler Planetarium (1300 S. Lake Shore Drive).

Wendi Taylor Nations, a cat woman of Chicago, will try to describe all that Tree House does for Chicago, and for cats – tough to do because really there is so much to talk about. Listen in, Steve Dale’s Pet Word, Sunday, October 12, 6:35AM CDT, WGN Radio, 720AM or listen HERE.

Wendi will describe some of the myriad of Tree House programs to support people and their pets, from low cost spay/neuter to providing resources regarding trap-neuter-return of feral cats. There’s the Tree House pet food pantry and most of all, the capital campaign for the spankin’ new Tree House building. When opened, this is expected to be the premier cat shelter in the county.

Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald of “Emergency Vets” on Animal Planet will offer pet medical jokes – as he does his stand-up funny man routine; and my old pal Paul Lisnek of “Politics Tonight” on CLTV/WGN-TV will emcee with me. Believe me, meeting Paul is unforgettable.

Anne Beall, author of “Community Cats: A Journey into the World of Feral Cats” will be there too, and can answer questions about TNR.

Most of all the evening is about helping Tree House, and among the many auction items is a hockey stick signed by the Golden Jet Bobby Hull himself, and nearly every current Chicago Blackhawk.

The evening will be unforgettable, and your chance to help Chicago’s cats…and the shelter that readily takes in cats with special needs and manages to find them homes. Tree House is known around the country for good reason – but your help is needed, and the evening will be fun! Lots of purring. Learn more HERE.
